Four institutes, one approach to interdisciplinary oceanography
The Ocean Institutes bring together the best minds in oceanography, engineering and related fields to foster innovative thinking and launch interdisciplinary initiatives in ocean science. These initiatives tackle many of society's greatest issues, including climate change, sustaining and conserving ocean ecosystems, and responding to disasters. The Institutes provide seed funding for these high-risk, high-reward projects. They also nurture rich graduate and post-doctoral education experiences for future leaders in oceanography, and serve as a public resource for science information.
This multi-year effort aims to develop new techniques and technologies to quantify the processes and impacts of ocean acidification.
